Now I am not the best stitcher in the world! Many years ago I did quite a bit of embroidery but I seem to have lost the knack, so please don't look too closely. I made up my little owl and gave it to DH to hang from his rear view mirror .. .. keeping an eye on him perhaps!
The Marianne Design Divas challenge is to use your Marianne dies, and I hope to join in again with a card before the challenge ends. In addition to the Marianne Collectable Owl die set I've added a little piece of blue lace also by Marianne. Having seen the pretty bird and butterfly die sets I'm going to have to get them too .. .. maybe with practice my stitching will improve!
We are on the final push to get the painting finished in Mum's room so the carpet fitter can do his job on Monday - I have skirtings to undercoat today ready for gloss painting tomorrow .. .. not my favourite job and with the sun shining in Cornwall, I'd much rather be in the garden.
